End of mainstream support for windows 7

Windows 7 have now ended their main stream support this year (January 13th to be exact).

Basically this means that Microsoft will no longer provide updates, fixes or online technical assistance. We recommend that you have the latest available update/service pack installed on your PC so you have the best protection.

The reason for this is that you will no longer receive  security updates from viruses and other threats.

There is good news however there is extended support for Windows 7 which will last till January 2020 which will help keep your PC protected.

We recommend upgrading your operating system within the next 5 years to minimise the risk of virus threats, by this point Windows 10 will be available which is rumoured to be the best operating system Windows have made.
